Shirley vE Embry,

Author,  Executive Director

Real Div Ltd's Co-Founder, Former Company Secretary, Editor-in-Chief, and Executive Director, was Shirley vE. Embry [SvEE], author of 36 published children's books, see below.

After co-founding
RDL: SvEE's first  project was to lead development of technology to control thousands of flocks, each up to 500-strong, pilot-less, autopilot-equipped Gavin Hawks (autogyros), more or less in the same manner as flocks of migratory birds.  Gavin Hawks in flocks need to avoid collisions within flocks, other Gavin Hawk  flocks, and other types of (stray) aircraft.  (Pending a mutual assistance agreement with the military and naval forces) they may also need to avoid and defend themselves against possible air-to-air and ground-to-air missiles. GiaBats and SuperGiaBats (both designed by RDL) would also be used to defend Utopia and Gavin Hawks.

Shirley recently finished writing  I am Jack, a "factional" biography of Scottish-Canadian Dr Thomas Neill Cream, a Victorian physician hanged in London as a serial killer of prostitutes. You may have also heard of him before under what is, probably, the world's  most infamous pseudonym. Cream's biography  has been published via Trafford, Amazon, Barnes & Nobel and others, printed and downloadable as eBooks.

She worked on a sweeping saga of life, times and adventures in George III's London, Colonial America and Europe under Napoleon. The first book was entitled "Paradise Walk and American Salute". The second may be "The French Salute" 

Nothing if not eclectic, she was also responsible for training Gavin Embry* on  how to edit the correspondence  and journalistic adventures of  Amy Black P. Katt and Amber P. Katt, [A&A], two feline sisters who combined their unusual talents  to get the story, wherever and whenever, in the Universe(s), it happens to happen.

*Now writing as his nom de plumb "Gaven d'Amaury III". His first is "Dance by the Light of the Earth".
